Collaborative Research Center 606
Non-Stationary Combustion:
Transport Phenomena, Chemical Reactions, Technical Systems

The Collaborative Research Center (Sonderforschungsbereich, SFB) "Non-Stationary Combustion: Transport Phenomena, Chemical Reactions, Technical Systems" has been established in 2002 by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The SFB is a research project at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (former University of Karlsruhe) including research groups from the faculties of Process Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry and Biosciences, and Civil Engineering. Adjoined to the CRC are also research groups from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Stuttgart.

  • Research topics of the SFB are phenomena linked to unsteady and transient combustion such as:
  • Chemical reactions and transport in highly transient temperature and pressure fields
  • Coupling of turbulence and chemical reactions in ignition and transient combustion
  • Interactions of chemical reactions, mass and heat transfer in transient multiphase flows
  • Combustion-driven instabilities
  • Combustion in direct injection internal combustion engines and gas turbines
  • Modeling and numerical simulation


Research Group PAK 116
Chemiluminescence and Heat Release

The Research Group PAK 116 (Paketantrag) "Chemiluminescence and Heat Release" has been established in 2007 by the DFG. It incorporates research groups from the Universities of Bielefeld, Darmstadt, Duisburg-Essen, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the Technical University Munich, and the DLR Stuttgart. It is coordinated by the University Duisburg-Essen. The main goal of this research group is establishing relations between heat release and flame emission due to chemiluminescence in flames to investigate and control combustion instabilities by means of modelbased diagnostics.

The research topics of the PAK 116 are:

  • Cavity-ringdown-absorption spectroscopy and heat-release-rate imaging in counter flow and turbulent flames Kinetics modeling of the chemiluminescence of CH*, C2*, OH*, and CO2
  • Investigation of the kinetics of key reactions of chemiluminescence in shock tubes
  • Spectroscopic characterization and simulation of the chemiluminescence in combustion processes
  • Simulation of chemiluminescence in practical combustion systems with non-stationary methods
  • Chemiluminescence and und quantitative OH imaging in stationary turbulent flames
  • Chemiluminescence and heat release in periodically excited turbulent flames
